A driver told Vienna police that she had been traveling eastbound on Tapawingo Road, S.W., on Aug. 26 at 7:25 a.m. when she began turning right onto Nutley Street, S.W., under a green traffic signal.

As she entered the intersection, she struck a bicyclist, police said. The driver exited her vehicle and offered to call the police and make a report. The bicyclist refused to exchange information or call the police, but instead demanded money from the resident as compensation for the accident.

The bicyclist left the scene before police arrived, authorities said.
